Electric Tug Applications
The CartCaddyHD Chain Drive electric tug is the heavy-duty upgrade to the CartCaddyHD. The 5000 lb electric/hydraulic lift system transfers weight from the load to its drive wheels where the electric tugger/cart gets its traction.
One of the most common applications of the CartCaddyHD Chain Drive cart mover is the cart with two straight casters and two front swivel casters. When attached to the swivel caster, the CartCaddyHD Chain Drive electric tugger provides the pushing and pulling power that is necessary for easy turning and smooth maneuvering with the cart mover.
The CartCaddy Heavy Duty Chain Drive powerful 6 hp motor can provide up to 2000 lbs of horizontal push and pull force, eliminating the need for a fork truck in heavy cart and equipment pulling applications. The CartCaddy gets their traction by transferring weight from the cart to its drive wheels with a 5000 lbs hydraulic lift kit. It works well on carts with casters that need turning or carts on a rail that go straight forward or backwards. If the load or cart needs turning and maneuvering, the customer generally needs to install a heavy, steel tongue that extends out and up at least 18″ from the end of the load. The end of this tongue will include a ball hitch or pintle “eye”. This tongue allows the Power Movers lift to “Push Up” , transferring up to 5,000 lbs to the drive tires for the added traction. The out and upward extension lets the wheels of the CartCaddy to turn under the tongue, giving the Power Mover the ability to make a 90 degree turn to the cart. The CartCaddyHD Chain Drive can push or pull loads up to 50,000 lbs.
